Yes -- the spheres show atomic VDW radii, and there are several ways
to change VDW radii. One way is the command vdwdefine, for example:
vdwdef +0.5 C
(add 0.5 angstroms to VDW radii of carbons)
(go back to default VDW radii)
Information on VDW radii in Chimera and several ways to change them:
Note that changing the VDW radii will affect other calculations such
as "findclash" and molecular surface generation. It may be better to
use the default radii for those purposes.
I hope this helps,
